* Possible Problem *
It's not clear how you have each of the components connected to the TV, but you do mention that you used the "yellow" and s-video connections. Those are both video connections. The yellow is a "composite video" connection. Many TVs won't accept signals from both the yellow and the s-video connections at the same time. Usually one will override the other.

* Possible Solution *
Make sure the satellite dish is on and (hopefully) on a valid channel. Try disconnecting the s-video and checking the screen. If it didn't work, remove the yellow connection and replace the s-video cable. Check again.

If the problem persists, please explain how the TV, dish and the dvd/vcr devices are connected to each other (audio cables not relevant).

Try this steps
On the backside of your satellite receiver, you will notice a bunch of connections. If you already have your coaxial satellite cable connected to the INPUT on the receiver, leave it connected. Disconnect and remove the cable connecting the receiver to the television.
Grab your A/V composite wires and insert them into the Audio/Video OUTPUTS on the back of the satellite receiver. These are color-coded connections--red to red, white to white and yellow to yellow. The red and white connections are your audio feeds and the yellow is for your video.
Look on the backside of your DVD/VCR dual recorder. You will see similar connections. Connect the other end of the composite wires to the Audio/Video INPUTS on the DVD/VCR dual recorder.
With a second set of A/V composite wires, connect one end to the DVD/VCR dual recorder's A/V OUTPUT and the other end to the television's A/V INPUT. Again, be sure to follow the color code. Also, if your television has more than one available input, be sure to know to which one you made the connections (A/V 1, A/V 2, etc.)

Next, tune your television to the proper input channel. Look on the television's remote control for a button that is labeled "Inputs" or "A/V." Press it until you see the correct A/V channel appear on the screen. If you made your connections in A/V 1, then the TV should display "A/V 1" in the corner
.
Now, just turn your equipment on and settle back to watch your favorite show or DVD

No sound


tcolson,

good day, make sure your RCA red and white marked cable connected to TV screen audio input where you also connect your yellow cable which is the video.

note: always remember color code of RCA cable

yellow = video
red and white = audio (left and right)

connection would always be:

video device yellow RCA socket = TV yellow "INPUT" socket
white and red RCA = TV white and red "INPUT "socket
make sure that all this 3 cable are connected together in a specific "A/V input"

cheers ,
mark

HOW DO I CONNECT MAGNAVOX DVD/ VCR TO VIZIO FLAT SCREEN


Is simply. get the audio/vido cables and look on the back of the TV and connect from the audio video outputs from the combo to the audio video inputs on the tv. remember the colors of the terminals and connect them that matches the red, white (audio) and the yellow (video). Using the remote locate the button "input" or "source", and select video 1 or 2, depending where you connected it.

DVD input with signal access


IF I understand you correctly, the VCR, Satellite, etc is connected using an RF modulator/coaxial cable wire going into Antenna in

IF this is true, then you have an AV IN port (red, yellow, white) free on the back. Just connect the red, yellow, white from the out of the DVD - you can use 1 or 2 - just remember which one you used; and connect it to the AV IN on the back of the TV.

THEN press ch down on the TV remote until you get to "AV1" - it is below channel 2; double check DVD player to make DVD is playing and voila!

Toshiba VCR/DVD Recorder Combo - Problems connecting it to system


I was able to connect to my cable box. I used RCA (yellow, red, white) cabling. I connected the Video Out on the cable box to the Video In on the DVD/VC (to the DVD VCR cabling section). I then from same section used the Video Out using RCA Cabling to the the Video In connectors on my Phillips LCD TV. That left only to connect the TV to the cable box using regular TV coax cable. Everything works, although I am going nuts trying to dub from VCR to DVD-R or +R discs.

How to record ?


I don't know a whole lot about electronic equipment, but I've never seen anything connected in so many ways at the same time. Maybe the antenna and one other type of connection. The different signals from all the connections are probably confusing each other. I would try one connection at a time to see if the problem improves. Good Luck.

Multiple video inputs


Unfortunately, you cannot use the connectors at the same time. The S-Video connector overrides the standard video connector. This is why they share common audio left/right inputs. If you could use them separately, they would each have their own set of audio inputs. (S-Video does not carry audio signals on the cable.) I'm assuming that you are connecting your Satellite as an input to your VCR, and then your VCR to the TV via a video connection. The VCR passes the satellite signal through unless you are watching a tape, then it overrides the dish signal. You have a few choices here: 1. You can connect the coaxial (RF) output from the VCR to the TV, and watch the satellite and VCR on channel 3 (or 4). You can then connect the DVD via S-Video, and watch it on "video". This is the simplest solution, and provides the best picture quality for the DVD (with this TV), but lower quality for the dish and VCR. 2. You can connect the DVD player via RF (if it supports that), watch the DVD on channel 3, and connect the VCR via video. This will make the DVD picture quality terrible. 3. You can replace the VCR with a combo DVD/VCR unit. You can then connect the S-Video out from the combo unit to the TV. This is a more expensive solution. 4. You can replace the TV with a model that includes more inputs. This is the most expensive solution, but will allow you to watch your DVD over component cables (very high quality) and VCR and dish over S-Video. Ironically, the obvious choice, connecting the DVD as an input to the VCR (as a pass-through) simply WON'T WORK. The signal put out by the DVD player is "copy protected" (using a system called MacroVision) which the VCR will refuse to play, even as a pass-though. Best of luck with this. Given that you are trying to make this all work without replacing equipment, I recommend option #1, until you decide to break down and buy a shiny new HDTV. They are coming down in price every week, but only you can decide when the time is right.
